FoodBeer! Ya gotta love it. It’s like watching an old film about or going on a World’s Fair/Epcot tour of The Kitchen of Tomorrow.

“No time to stop off at the bar with the fellas after work? Just make sure your wife picks up a little FoodBeer™ and adds it to your plate at the dinner table. All of the smooth, relaxing, confidence-building effects of a frosty cold one without the frosty stares from the missus when you finally stumble home well after dinner’s gone cold!”

It would likely be followed up by FoodGin™ and FoodScotch™, with FoodWine™ for ladies. I just bought spray vinaigrette salad dressing last night and it worked really well, so why not just add booze to it? That would make for some very mentally healthy lunches, to be sure.

I had a fairly kick-ass productive day at work yesterday, spinning gold from straw and working a few miracles so I decided to treat myself. I really wasn’t in the mood to take myself out on a date, but I’d been doing low-fat nuked meals at home for too long. After a quick trip to the store and a few minutes in the kitchen I turned out a nice salad with baby spinach, feta and grapes lightly tossed with a (spray-on) raspberry vinaigrette, a small herb-rubbed ribeye steak and microwaved potato chips. That last one didn’t work out all that well, the potato slices were cooked through, but not very crispy so I tossed them with a bit of the steak juices and they were mmm… how do you say… delicious, de-lovely, delectable, divine?

    Microwave Potato Chips – the first thing that came to mind was a scene from Lost in Space (yes, I’m that old) when June Lockhart stuck a couple of potatoes in a device, waited a couple of seconds, opened the lid, and violà, potato chips!

    @kyle: That was one of the shows that I always thought was cool, but somehow couldn’t manage to maintain my attention for long. I remember the basics of the series and the idiosyncrasies of certain characters, but aside from the one episode where there were duplicates of the crew–only detectable by their webbed hands–I have no concrete recollections of it.

    Dr. Smith as a (hardly) closeted queen is the stand-out memory for me.
